10 Reasons Why Lidge is Better than K-Rod

A very nice shoutout for our boy Brad Lidge. Over at, there's a nice little article citing 10 reasons why Brad Lidge is more valuable than Fransico Rodriguez.

My personal favorites:

1. The hard-throwing righty converted a pair of tough saves over the weekend to improve to 40-for-40 in save opportunities this season. While K-Rod has earned an MLB-record 60 saves (and counting), he's also blown seven opportunities.

6. He's excelled in the season-long NL East pressure-cooker. By contrast, the Angels have owned first place since early May -- and Rodriguez has pitched since mid-July with the reassurance of his team's double-digit cushion in the AL West race.

10. Playing in one of baseball's most hitter-friendly parks -- in one of the nation's most demanding sports cities -- Lidge has shown no signs of letdown since signing a 3-year, $37.5 million contract extension in July. If anything, he's been even more clutch as the spotlight has burned brighter.

Check it out. Definitely a nice, quick read.
